Changing Seasons

IMG_8498 (2)

Seasons of life collide with a season of war

Carnage rains down on young and old

The world weeps tears of anger and compassion

While those in Ukraine struggle to hold on

to their disrupted displaced lives

Snow falls as they hug their children

Today at d’Verse, Lisa asked us to write a Quadrille of 44 words about the seasons. As an older person, I think about both the changing seasons and my own season of life. War is a vortex of evil that can happen in any season, but for us who are older it only speeds our demise.

In our digital world we see the horrors of the war in Ukraine every day on our news broadcasts. One cannot help but put themselves in their place as we watch and wonder what we would do in their place.

  2. War is such a frightening thing. In a snap of the finger things can turn ugly. From children playing in the park, to the same park found in a blown up rubble. Thanks for expressing how your feel about it. It sometimes helps people to understand how they should feel about a certain crisis going on in the world. I never looked at it from an angle how war just speeds up the end for a person who is older. Take care. ❤️
